Slugabed - Time Team
A belated review, but if you have samples the album you will understand the time it takes to digest a piece of work such as Time Team… outstanding, cosmic, intelligent… I could carry on with synonyms for awesome but I won’t. The first thing a keen listener and someone custom to Slugabed will notice after a listen through, is the quota of quantised tracks. This...
Hot Sugar - #MindControl
This dropped on Ninjatune last month, only just got a chance to have a listen today, glitchy little foot tapper from New York. Then I checked out the music video, which is even more cracked out than the tune itself…. NSFW, but don’t get too excited. Full review of the Moon Money EP very soon, shaping up to be very positive so far. #MindControl…
Kahn - Angeles
Like many of Kahns previous tracks, Angeles takes a catchy vocal progression, cuts it up and uses it as a coagulant for his liquid synth and understated drums. Pure garage influence on this one, the level of restraint is perfect, with the omnipresence of it about to really kick off throughout the tune, and knowing what Kahn is like with VIP’s, expect a punchier reiteration in the...
Space Ghost - You're There LP
No, not this one. Astro Nautico are giving away more music over at bandcamp, this time a full length from recently featured and Oakland based, Space Ghost. A selection of crunky beats and divergent synths, definately worth the hassle of clicking three links and price of nil. More free downloads over at his soundcloud aswell. You’re There LP by Space Ghost
Julio Bashmore - Troglodytes
Funky spaced out number from Bashmore, free download from soundcloud.
High Powered Boys - Streetwise EP
Since bursting into business a few months ago with the stampy Work EP, the tital track an inventive blend of claps and grainy shouts, the powerful match up of Bobmo and Surkin have distilled their sound into an momentous EP of contrasts. With Bobmo bringing the beats and Surkin the synth, the synergy between them creates something different all together, but it is really the restraint which...
Kastle - Stay Forever EP
Symbols Recordings launch EP, Stay Forever is a quadruple A-side production, with none of the filler that sometimes proves customary with Kastles releases. The haunting titular track, is a moody 100bpm slow burner which oozes with sumptuous pitch bending synths and a vocal track that some will recall from Hackmans chiming anthem Close. Don’t Look Back uses it’s hits and clicks to...
Hudson Mohawke and Lunice - TNGHT
Those that haven’t rinsed out Bugg’n since hearing it, may be unfamiliar with the two heavyweights recent alliance. Shaping up to be a fully rounded release, weighing in at 5 tracks, TNGHT already look like they are going to leave a huge boot shaped stamp on the face of dance music. Pre-order on Bleep

Brought to you by Quentin Dupieux, more commonly known as Mr. Oizo and starring Marilyn Manson. If you’ve seen Rubber, then you will know what to expect from the filmmaker, and probably will find the first installment of Wrong Cops fairly tame by the formers standards. If you aren’t customised to Quentins surreal locations, sharp dialogue and the general “meta” feel of...
Atlantics Volume Two
Hugely impressive 40 track album featuring a plethora of producers and sounds, including Baaeur, Pixelord, Paul Jones and many more alumni of Astro Nautico, including the man himself Kuhn. Check the video above for a flavour, a jumpy stepper from Obey City with some pretty intense bass and breaks work going on. Plenty of different vibes at play here, have fun… it’s all free to...
Download The Takeover for free Romania isn’t reknowned for it’s electronic music scene, but Village is another example of the transient borders currently limiting dance music, with some of the most original and progressive sounds reaching us from various corners of Europe and the globe. Hailing from Galati, along the stretches of the Danube River, the fledgling producer has made a...
